Newborn Sleeping All day: Is something wrong?

newborns sleep....a lot! I was kind of shocked at first how much my girl slept as a newborn. At first she would pretty much only wake up to eat. It is normal for them to sleep a lot. Newborns need 16-18 hours of sleep a day. As they get older they will be alert for longer periods of time. If your new born is hard to rouse, seems lethargic or off, call your doc right away
